Fixed. Thank you.

This is a different feature. Since it belongs to the captured entry, the
timestamp should be defined in your capture template (e.g. "%t"
placeholder) instead.

This is not the purpose of `org-datetree-add-timestamp' variable. 

Its main uses are to link datetrees with agenda and to build time-based
sparse trees from a datetree.

See above. You can use "%T".
